Flooding a Huge Concern in the Midwest

by Jamie Robinson        March 28, 2011  |  12:49 pm  |  Category: Latest News

Flood watches and warnings are in place from Minnesota down into Mississippi and Louisiana as a result of rain and snowmelt through the midwest.  Cooler temperatures the past few days have helped slow the snowmelt, but new rain and snow for many locations this past weekend have fueled new flooding concerns.

The city of Davenport, Iowa will begin building a wall to protect their water treatment facility later this year.  The project, which partners the city with the Army Corps of Engineers, will cost a reported $11.5 million.  The water treatment facility is the sole water source for over 130,000 people in and around Davenport.

Flooding has affected many areas of the United States this year from the Midwest to the Northeast as well as flooding and mudslides in California. 

Always remember when approaching flood waters to not try to drive through it.  It takes very little running water (as little as 6") to carry a vehicle away.

As severe weather and flooding continue into the spring, be sure to stay ahead of the weather with Weather Defender.
